 * 'sc' is passed shrink_control which includes a count 'nr_to_scan'
 * and a 'gfpmask'.  It should look through the least-recently-used
 * 'nr_to_scan' entries and attempt to free them up.  It should return
 * the number of objects which remain in the cache.  If it returns -1, it means
 * it cannot do any scanning at this time (eg. there is a risk of deadlock).
 * The callback must not return -1 if nr_to_scan is zero.
 *
 * The 'gfpmask' refers to the allocation we are currently trying to
 * fulfil.
 *
 * Note that 'shrink' will be passed nr_to_scan == 0 when the VM is
 * querying the cache size, so a fastpath for that case is appropriate.
